Zorza (Pork loin marinated with Spanish paprika)

Published originally in lareira.net by Marta on 25/12/2001

Zorza is what, in Galicia, we call the minced pork meat that make up chorizos. It doesn’t necessarily have to be pork loin, but it’s better that way. In this recipe we fried the zorza with potatoes but you can also do an “empanada” or with fried eggs.

Servings 6 people


  • 1500 g pork loin
  • 3 tbsps sweet paprika
  • 1 tbsp spicy paprika
  • 4 garlic clove
  • 4 tbsps olive oil
